Oslo, July 27 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Norwegian police are looking for an “insane and dangerous” man who has compared himself to Anders Behring Breivik, the lone man arrested for the terror attacks in Norway that killed 76 people.

Norwegian media printed pictures of the man, who police said may be very dangerous to the public.

Police have put him on the national ‘wanted’ list after he was released from prison Monday although psychiatrists said he was mentally unstable and posed a danger to society.

“One could say he is mentally unstable judging by his behaviour. He also said that he identified himself with Breivik, accused of killing 76 people,” Norwegian TV-2 channel reported.

Breivik, 32, has admitted carrying out the bombing in Oslo that killed seven people, and the mass shooting at a youth camp on nearby Utoya island.
